Hello(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Just wondering when there is a graph of distance vs time for an oscillating mass in SHM and the graph is a sine curve and it asks us for the period-do we just find the time it takes for one wave to be completed? say the x-axis is eg: 1 2 3 4 5 6 etc etc and the wave is completed between 5 and 6 (closer to 5) do we just estimate the period from there say 5.2 seconds or is there another way?

Also how do we find the speed is it just v=d/t where d=amplitude and t=time period?

Thanks
